    If Wilson is not charged we will have a world of hurt on our hands because of the appearance of impropriety.
    No one will be willing to just forget about this.
    Is that what you want?
    Do you believe that is in the best interests of Ferguson?
    You do not CHARGE someone with a crime unless the evidence warrants a charge. That is not how the legal system works. There has to be sufficient evidence first and that is determined by the investigation. The investigation is ongoing at this point and a charge will be issued only if there is sufficient evidence to warrant it.

    Not when opposing evidence is unreliable and all other evidence supports one side.
    That is just absurd.

    Wrong.

    Wrong. You do not charge folks where the evidence shows they acted appropriately.
    The shooting should have went to a review board first.

    Bs. The evidence dictates reality.
    There would have been no such appearance.You thinking so is absurd.

    Nonsense.

    It is about the evidence. Not with a portion of the community's ignorance and inability to deal with reality.

    Does that count, or

    Check yourself.
    Do you really think that the Chief is going to purposely release false info? If you think that, your thoughts are illogical to an extreme.
    He may have been mistaken at one point, but he wasn't purposely releasing false info.
    Especially as we know that at some point the Officer's account will be available.
    The Federal investigation will reveal that...

    I've been saying the same thing for a long time.

    The USA survived without the Whigs, and it'll survive without the GOP if it has to.

    Wait and see.




    There are a lot of good people in the GOP, but they're letting some other people run the party.

    There have been lots of calls for shooting looters on sight as well.
    The rope would make it a "lynch mob"...Your words.

You keep your eyes on the target, head up... not up high, but your eyes locked on your target.

    The last thing you want is to get juked and end up on your face.
    I am not incorrect. You are bent at the waist, which lowers your head, and puts it in a downward angle relative to normal upright stance regardless of not being parallel to the ground. You generally don't get shot in the face when performing a tackle in any sport, so what occurs to the head position after that occurs is purely supposition. It is reasonable to speculate that it forced his head down, or that he may have been falling at the time the final shot struck the top of his head.

    Which Jackson? Don't see either one doing that but maybe you have an inside scoop we don't know about.

    In case you didn't notice ...there has been a pattern.

    No, it's not, if you're talking about some stoner sitting on a park bench minding his own damn business. Relaying that it was reported that he had marijuana in his system was not intended to serve as justification for the shooting. As part of the bigger picture, though, it's relevant.
